Ideal for starting seeds and cuttings or tranplanting - contents 10 litres.
- Professional quality fertile compost
- Unique formula promotes water retention and aeration
- Helps to nourish young plants and provide healthy root systems
Filling Trays/Pots - Ensure compost is sufficiently moist prior to use and if not gently spinkle with water. Break up any lumps in the compost and fill your container to just below the rim. Firm the surface gently.
Sowing Seed - Sow your seed sparingly across the surface, or singly if using small peat pots or plug trays. Refer to individual seed packets for specific instructions such as whether to cover seeds with compost and temperatures required for germination.
Plant Growing - Sow and Grow compost is also excellent for transplanting and growing on your seedlings. Prepare your tray as you would for seed sowing. 'Tease' out your seedlings, making holes with a pencil to receive them 36mm (1½") apart in the compost or individually in sparate pots or cells. Firm them in gently with the small base leaves just above the surface.
Planting - You can use Sow and Grow compost for planting up hanging baskets or patio containers. It is equally suitable for young plants produced from seed or 'cuttings'. We recommend that you commence feeding with a quality liquid feed when the plants are established (after 3-5 weeks). Alternatively, mix in a slow release fertiliser when planting.
How much will it fill? - Your 10 litre bag of Suttons Sow and Grow compost is sufficient to fill the following: 3 Standard Trays; 4 Suttons Sow and Grow Peat Strip Propagators (large); 2.5 Suttons Sow and Grow 'Plug' Plant Propagators; 60 3" pots.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not allow your Suttons Sow and Grow compost to dry out but equally do not overwater.
